If your surgeon isn't sure how he or she plans to proceed, ask if obtaining a second opinion would be helpful. ...Read more

What to do with 840 mililiters blood in abdomen after hernia surgery had hernia repair surgery on testicle was in bad pain 2 weeks later dr said blood floating around in abdomen

Many : Many times the blood you are talking about is bodily fluids tinged with blood. Sometimes you don't even have to drain that fluid. I'm assuming they did because you have an exact measure of 840 milliliters...

Last week I had open inguinal hernia surgery and had my incision glued together. How should the incision look by now. Mine looks red like dried blood on it, is this normal and how long is healing.

Last week I had open inguinal hernia surgery and had my incision glued together. How should the incision look by now. Mine looks red like dried blood on it, is this normal and how long is healing.

The incision can look a little red, as you mentioned, but if this is increasing or you have drainage or increasing tenderness, these may be signs of an impending infection. At one week after surgery, the incision will not look very good, and will look absolutely fine in several weeks. ...Read more
